Top 8 Instagramers of Calcutta

John Grams Calcutta/Kolkata

For about a third of the year, Avantika and I call Calcutta our home. I have tried many times to explain to my friends and family back in the States what Calcutta is like. The city houses such a diversity and activity, I find it difficult to grasp on to a core idea from which to explain the place. And I am not sure any one person can.

Fortunately, in this age of social media I do not have to rely on my own descriptive faculties. Many of Calcutta's citizens host active Instagram accounts. When taken individually, each account provides only a tantalizing snapshot of the city. When taken together however, you start to feel like you wandering the streets of this dynamic place we call home.

Below are Mana Organics' Top 8 Instagram Accounts of Calcutta. We hope that by exploring their photos, you can feel like you are walking through the gullies of Calcutta with us.
